Very well made
on 2 March 2015
I live in the far north of Scotland and go running three times a week. Even now, at the start of spring, evening temperatures can hover around freezing so for at least half of the year running tights are a must. I have a few pairs and have found these Ultrasport tights to be comparable to leading brands.
The tights are stealthy black in colour, they have a slightly fleecy feel inside and are smooth on the outside. The monotonous black is broken by nice, bright blue stitching and there a grey printed circles which function are retro-reflectors at night.
So, the tights look the part and, more importantly, they are well made and well thought out. The material feels like good quality, the stitching is good and the attention to detail is excellent.
There is a small, zipped pocket at the back that sits on the tailbone. This is good for keys and will hold an iphone (I can fit my 4s in there). This is pefect if you want to play tunes or track your run. There is also a lace running through the elastic waistband, I never use this but its there if you need it. The ankles are well thought out too, there is grippy elastic material exposed on the inside ankle cuff which prevents the tights from creeping up your legs. There are zips aid in putting the tights on and the zips also snap down, they don't flap around which, if you have tights that do that, are a total mare as the zips keep flapping into your ankles, very distracting and annoying.
I have been very impressed with these tights and would recommend them
